Calley's imprisonment

Post 1

Oot Rito

From other sources I understand that Calley was court marshalled and sentenced to life imprisonment for twenty two murders and, in particular, when he appealed against the conviction, he was held under HOUSE ARREST and that three years later (after the intervention of President Nixon) he was allowed to go free.
House arrest is of course a form of imprisonment but probably the "best" kind available.

You've got it.

He only served a few days in Fort Leavenworth and only a few years under house arrest. Then Nixon pardoned him.

And that was the ONLY conviction.
